Quotes [last lines]
Allison Jones: [Allie narrating] I cried the whole week of Sam's funeral. Graham says that won't bring him back. He says I have to start letting go. He's right. Hedy's parents said that for years they tried to explain to her that her sister's death wasn't her fault but she never forgave herself for surviving. So, every day, I try to forgive Hedy for Sam. Then I try to do what she couldn't - Forgive myself. I know what can happen to someone who doesn't.
